  • Step 1

    Collect a bunch of T-shirts about 10-20 depending on size.

    Find some border fabric and back fabric, I used two bed sheets one black and one colourful win size to fit my bed.

    buy batting, interfacing and thread

  • Step 2

    Lay out bottom sheet and measure in width of order on all sides

    Start cutting all your t-shirts into squares and rectangles to fit in your drawn section

    DON'T FORGET SEAM ALLOWENCE

  • Step 3

    Iron on interfacing on ever t-shirt piece to stiffen for easier sewing

    watch out for delicate decals and rhinestones those burn or come off on your iron sometimes. I used an applique pressing sheet to save my t-shirts

  • Step 4

    Sew them all together. Be patient this takes time

    cut out and sew bored on edges

  • Step 5

    layer batting, top and back together, sew all the way around and flip right side out

  • Step 6

    finish by top stitching or sewing buttons on every t-shirt corner

    Sew patches in blank pieces and over tears

  • Step 7

    Keep nice and warn :D

I need to make one of these. I have so many well loved shirts with holes in the armpits. I can't bring myself to get rid of them but they're just taking up space in my wardrobe.
